Espresso, brunch, seafood and dinner - this weekend with 14 month old!?

apb | Oct 6, 2010 10:45 AM

Coming to Boston this weekend (Oct 9 - 12) with our 14 month old and looking for suggestions that will be friendly for her too (friendly meaning the premises and fellow diners are happy to accommodate her - if they have high chairs even better). We're staying at the Park Plaza at Arlington and won't have a car so we'll be primarily on foot but of course willing to take a cab/subway/T.

Looking for help with the following please!

1 - Coffee near the hotel - any recommendations for good espresso takeaway coffee we can grab near the hotel before we head out for the day? Starbucks doesn't count.

2 - We want to do one leisurely breakfast/brunch. Something more upscale than a greasyspoon/diner. Not sure which area is good for this.. Bay Bay? Beacon Hill?

3 - One buzzy Boston dinner spot. Again the little one's coming with us so it may have to be an early dinner or if we have a later seating she might go to sleep in the stroller (hey.. we can hope!). No jacket and tie - tidy jeans and a nice shirt type place. Not Asian, not steakhouse. Mid-range price point.. happy to pay for mains in the $20s.

4 - Seafood. Not asian style but chowder, oysters, lobster, etc. We're from Australia but live in Toronto so we're really missing fresh seafood! Can either be lunch or dinner.

Thanks Chowhounders!
